Waiting on Wednesday is a brilliant weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I love it because it introduces me to books that I wouldn't necessarily know were coming out!

Orphaned and picking pockets in London’s Charing Cross station to support not only herself, but her ‘family’ of orphans, sixteen year-old Tiki steals the Queen’s ring and thinks she’s solved their problems. That is, until Rieker, a pickpocket from the North End, suspects her in the theft and tells her that the ring is really a reservoir that holds a truce between the British and Faerie courts.
When he warns her that the fey will do anything, including murder, to recover the ring, Tiki is unsure whether to believe him or not. To complicate matters, Rieker seems to know something about the unusual birthmark on Tiki’s wrist. But when Tiki and her family are threatened the game changes.
In a dazzling debut that takes you from the gritty slums of Victorian London to the glittering ballrooms of the Royal Palace to the menacing Otherworld, you won’t want to miss this thrilling tale of mystery, adventure and romance.(
Oh how I'm looking forward to this book! I LOVE all things FAE! Hence the name, THE BOOK FAERY!
Unfortunately, it doesn't come out until September 27, 2011 but I can always try for an earlier copy! Never underestimate the power of FAERY DUST on the unsuspecting!!!
The Faerie Ring must come to me soon or:
I shall perish:
My wings losing their beautiful luster; my fine rose spider spun silk gown will be tattered and torn and all Faery Fruit & Faery Wine will become unappealing to me until I'm lying with my faithful FAERY court surrounding me, little FAERY wings fluttering in dismay---starving upon my chaise lounge-dying from the injustice of it all...
Teehee gotcha's---I have a much stronger spirit but I do want that book something FAERYOUCIOUS!
